Despite the ugly market on Monday, the big gap up and the slide all session, the indices ending the session at the session lows, a lot of stocks we follow did well today. We’re going to take a look at some of those.
Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) has a very interesting chart. It was in a down trend for quite a while, going from the mid 50’s down to the low 20’s. It bounced in an orderly retrace, jumped up again with a thrust, and a falling wedge. A breakaway gap to the upside broke it out above the first level of resistance, and then a 7- or 8-day pullback set it up for the pop on Monday, up 1.21 to 39.27, or 3.18%, on 1.8 million shares. It reached our target at 40, and the next target is in the mid 40’s.
Deckers Outdoor Corp. (DECK) was in a very long down trend, going from over 100 down to under 30. Lateral price resistance was taken out on Monday, with a big breakaway gap on a volume of 6 1/2 million shares. It jumped 4.05 to 42.34, or 10 1/2%. The short-term up-channel has been reached and there may be a pullback. However, if momentum accelerates on this one, it could move quickly to the mid-to-high 40’s, maybe even as high as 49-50.
The GEO Group, Inc. (GEO) had a distinct breakout over multi-week consolidation on Monday in the confines of a rising channel. It popped 1.57 to 29.77, or 5.6%, on 2 million shares. Look for a target of 32-3 on GEO.
Qihoo 360 Technology (QIHU) had a significant breakout on Monday. It broke through 2-2 1/2 year tops, and on Monday, it spiked up 2.45 to 27.44, or 10%, on 11 million shares. It looks like it may run up to test the 29 zone short-term. If it gets through that, look for something up around 34. It has a nice base pattern, and technicals are improving. So keep an eye on this one.
